Community Websites

Community Websites

Community Websites are often communally owned Non-Profit organisations like trusts and charities, local projects and initiatives.

Community Forum

Every community needs a safe, secure and moderated forum where members can share ideas and information. We can set these up for you.

Membership Website

A membership website has a private 'gated' or 'paywall' area where subscribers can benefit from special offers and get access to exclusive content.

Mobile Only

Optimised for All Devices

As more users now access your website from mobile devices than desktops, and 95% of all mobile searches are done on Google, the Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) landscape is undergoing a seismic shift. As such, Google's search results are now based only on the mobile-version of a website's page. This means that SEO is now solely about optimising for Mobile SEO. Which is why all our websites are now optimised for Mobile Only.

Micro Websites

Microsites

Microsites are small tightly-focused websites announcing, for example, a service or product launch, campaign, or forthcoming event. In these targeted situations they have some powerful advantages that can be leveraged.

Single Page Websites

Similar to Microsites, Single Page Websites work really well when there's not a lot of information required to achieve their goal or function. Their specificity makes them ideal for marketing and SEO purposes.

Brochure Websites

Brochure websites are like online business cards. They were popular in the early days, and even though they now have little value they may be a good place to start if cost is a very real issue. On the other hand, if cost really is an issue, then you'd be better off taking advantage of one of our Aftercare options.

Typography

They say 95% of the information on the internet is written, yet a website's typography is often overlooked. Not by us. We understand the importance of not only finding the right typeface to create a strong brand identity but also using typography as a User Interface (UI).

FAQsFrequently Asked Questions

  • Do your websites include Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)?

    Absolutely. All our Edinburgh, Peebles and Scottish Borders websites are built on strong SEO foundations and structured throughout to gain every onsite SEO advantage. This will give your website the upper hand over poorly constructed, old or amateur websites, or those that don't keep growing and adapting to the ever-changing search engine algorithms.

    We can also help with offsite SEO, through our Aftercare plans and SEO Booster plan. Get in touch to find out more.

  • Can your designs get my website on the front page of Google's search results?

    We are very good at search engine optimisation: we've been doing it for more than a decade, and it shows in our results. It's the atomic heart of our Aftercare strategy and a crucial component in a website's growth and success.

    But it's not a precise science, and even though we'll use every trick up our sleeve to get you the search rankings you want, we can't guarantee them. No one can. And those who say they can are lying through their shiny white teeth.

  • Does a better looking website mean higher search engine ranking?

    Under the surface of a well-designed website there's a lot of paddling going on... and a good looking, easy-to-use website is a very good indicator that below the surface the website has been professionally designed in terms of structure, usability, information architecture, and Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) — all of which Google will take into account when ranking website pages higher in their search results.

    So, in a nutshell, yes. Our attention to detail both above and below the surface means your website will be sleek, streamlined and in perfect condition to rise up the rankings.

  • Do you only design websites for Peebles and the Scottish Borders?

    Although we have an international client list, we love to work hands-on with our local clients in Edinburgh, Peebles and the Scottish Borders. If you're local and need some support or advice, give us a call, we're always happy to help!
